Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court

The Rome Statute (‘Statute’) of the International Criminal Court (ICC) was adopted on 17 July 1998 and entered into force on 1 July 2002. This instrument is significant because it constituted the ICC, ie the first permanent international criminal tribunal with general jurisdiction. The Statute is therefore eminently important, both with respect to the law of international judicial institutions and international criminal law.
